There are some workarounds. One is
from Eduard Bloch.
There is an downloadable ISO-Image (floppies, too, of
course), which lets you install woody based on
2.4.20 (and xfs, if you like).
The floppies include various drivers for SCSI controllers,
etc. (and even for your intel card, iirc).
There is no safe distance.
